LIE TO ME is the compelling drama series inspired by the scientific discoveries of a real-life psychologist who can read clues embedded in the human face, body and voice to expose the truth and lies in criminal investigations.

DR. CAL LIGHTMAN (Tim Roth) is the world's leading deception expert. If you lie to Lightman, he'll see it in your face and your posture or hear it in your voice. If you shrug your shoulder, rotate your hand or even just slightly raise your lower lip, Lightman will spot the lie. By analyzing facial expressions and involuntary body language, he can read feelings ranging from hidden resentment to sexual attraction to jealousy. His work gives him the knowledge and skill set to expertly deceive others as well as detect lies.

"Lightman is like that kid in the back of class who used to sit with his feet up on the back of the desk and snarl at the teacher. He subverts authority and the FBI represents that," Graziano adds. "We'd come up with these great stories, but because they didn't adhere to FBI procedure, we couldn't tell the stories effectively."In Monday's finale (8/7c on Fox), the Lightman Group investigates the death of a journalist who happens to be one of Cal's friends. Tensions between Lightman and Reynolds again rise when Reynolds wears a wire during one of his meetings with Lightman.

Season 3 will shift Lightman & Co. into more of a private-eye role, Cary says. "They're sort of thorns in the side to regular law enforcement," he says. "We are leaning into his general conflict with power and authority. We make it clear in the very first episode that he has severed his ties with the FBI because he's nobody's lap dog."But he still needs a badge sometimes," Graziano adds, noting that the finale also introduces a new character, Detective Wallowski (Monique Curnen) who "shares the same disdain that Lightman has for authority."

Back with new lies and life-changing situations, Dr. Cal Lightman (Tim Roth), the world's leading deception expert, continues to assist federal law enforcement by taking on their cases and using scientific ability to spot a lie through facial expressions and body movement. Both a blessing and a curse, Lightman wrestles in his personal life, where family and friends deceive each other as readily as criminals and strangers.

Cary also hints that Wallowski could be a possible love interest for Lightman. "She crosses into the gray areas now and again, and that suits Lightman," he says. "So, it gives him somebody who has a badge, and somebody with whom he can operate on the street, but she also appeals to Lightman."

And what does that mean for Lightman and Dr. Gillian Foster (Kelli Williams)? "He enjoys pulling her pigtails and aggravating her, but it's all born out of his deep love for her and a professional respect," Graziano says. "He needs a certain amount of handling, and she enjoys doing that, but sometimes it causes friction between them. But the core relationship is one of respect and love."
